Four weeks after winter solstice
Here's what Grise Fiord looked like at lunchtime today. The sun will come up on February 11, only three weeks still to go. I'm happy just to have a little bit of light, but the darkness doesn't really bother me that much. It's surreal, but cozy. That said, I have never been up here for more than half the dark season ... if I was here for the whole 3.5 months of darkness, I might be a little more anxious to see the actual sun come back!
